Livingstone Island Excursion

Livingstone Island Excursion, Zambia

If you would like an action filled few hours, with a great adrenalin rush, then a trip to Livingstone Island with a picnic lunch in the dry months is highly recommended.

You are taken by boat to the island on the edge of Victoria Falls and taken on a brief history tour before swimming across a channel, crossing a rocky outcrop and jumping into a rock pool. From here you will be right next to the main flow and by lifting yourself onto the rocky outcrop, you can see to the bottom of the Victoria Falls.

Please note that this trip is subject to water levels and if the water is too high the trips will not run for safety reasons. Swimming in the rock pool on the edge of the Falls is only possible in the dryer season when water levels are sufficiently low.
